ubuntu package list

Filed under: useful snippets — yordan @ 2:28 pm

First, let’s make the list. You’ll be doing all of this in a Terminal Session:

dpkg –get-selections | grep -v deinstall > ubuntu-files

Now you’ve got a list of all of your installed debs in a fairly small file. In my case, I simply moved this file to a thumb-drive. You could also store it on a seperate partition or on a disk somewhere. Heck, it’s not that big, email it to your gmail account.

So now you’ve got this list and all is well, until you’re Ubuntu install either dies or has to be reinstalled for some reason. Go ahead and do the base install.

Once you’ve got Ubuntu back up and running, copy your ubuntu-files back into your home directory and do the following:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

dpkg –set-selections < ubuntu-files

Now you’ve told your system what it needs to install, so let’s install it all.

sudo dselect

This will open up a dselect session. Type ‘I‘ and allow dselect to install of the the packages listed in your ubuntu-files document. When it’s finished, type ‘Q‘ and hit the ENTER key to exit dselect.

I was always fond of this one, describing a construction worker practicing his art in a building designed for such a purpose producing more buildings with the same purpose. He was in the building building building building building building buildings.
